Fedotenko not in warmups; Bickel apparently will play

Here at TD Garden, Ruslan Fedotenko, who practiced with the team this morning and skated on his own yesterday, is not on the ice for warmups, so it appears that he is scratched.

Fedotenko took a shoulder to the jaw and face on a blindside hit from Tampa's Dominic Moore on Thursday. He said this morning that he was feeling better, but that dressing tonight was a gametime decision.

Stu Bickel will skate on a fourth line for the third game, it seems...

In goal, it's Tim Thomas vs Henrik Lundqvist
